When I watched the pilot episode, it certainly looked like a series
worth watching. That being said, the high IMDB score (8.2) is reflected
by a miniscule 3,492 votes...indicating little interest in the show
actually existed. The fact that the revival folks have spun the issue
into one claiming that sexism at Amazon is the reason for the show's
cancellation is silly. The show was canceled due to lack of viewership
and trying to claim otherwise is rather opportunistic dirty pool.
